Classic, Comforting, Cannabis

A family business with Santa Cruz soul, dedicated to baking cannabis cookies that are tasty, consistent, and effective.

Meet Big Pete's Family

Santa Cruz is where it all began. As a young man growing cannabis and baking cookies, Big Pete devoted himself to creating consistent, wonderful edibles that harness the healing power of cannabis-infused butter. After 6 years surfing and enjoying the good vibes in Hawaii,Pete returned to Santa Cruz to start his business in 2009, focused on helping people with medical cannabis.

As the legalization movement swept through the West, Big Pete realized he couldn’t handle everything on his own, so his son Pete Jr.and daughter Katie learned how to navigate the uncharted waters of a newly legal, quickly evolving industry. Big Pete’s Treats have entered contests and won awards, earning shelf space in over 100 California dispensaries. Most importantly, positive testimonials from patients affirm that Big Pete’s Treats have helped people in countless ways.


Giving back to the community is part of Big Pete's Treats core values. Santa Cruz and surfing have always had a special place in our hearts, so in an effort to keep our beloved beaches beautiful we sponsor beach clean-up days to keep our coasts clean.

Way back in high school, Big Pete led a project to clean up Santa Cruz's iconic Lighthouse Field, and this spirit has continued into our efforts to encourage good works in our community. By preventing litter from getting into the Monterey Bay, we protect marine wildlife, preserve a beautiful place and connect with our environment. To date, Big Pete's Treats has mobilized volunteers to collect litter from 26th Avenue beach, Lighthouse Field, Sunny Cove, Cowell's, Twin Lakes, Highlands Park, and Seabright beaches.

Follow us on social media to receive updates on the next beach clean-up events.


Big Pete loves surfing, so we sponsor promising surfers and partner with local surf organizations to support the local culture that makes Santa Cruz so special.

We've sponsored surfers like Drake Stanley and Chad Underhill, but we're always looking for new talent!
